Cubs | Mike Olt, Junior Lake starting
Thu, 10 Apr 2014 10:20:34 -0700

Chicago Cubs 3B Mike Olt and OF Junior Lake are receiving starts against a right-handed pitcher Thursday, April 10. Manager Rick Renteria explained the move because of the fact that Pittsburgh Pirates SP Gerrit Cole has similar splits against righties and lefties. "These are two young players who we're going to try to get them as much playing time as we can," Renteria said of Olt and Lake. "We're trying to find spots that can give them an opportunity to gain some confidence." OFs Ryan Sweeney and Nate Schierholtz are batting .174 and .118 respectively against righties this year.
